Andrew, who used to be in the ’90s band CDB but was forced to leave due to illness, said of his win, “It was just an amazing moment. This is all a dream . . . I feel amazing. It’s just such a beautiful way for it to come to an end and in a way it’s actually a new beginning.” He also spoke highly of the runners-up, adding, “I was so happy to be up there with those guys, I have much so respect for them. It’s real music as well, so for both of us to be up there together is incredible and such a positive achievement for original Australian music.” The other acts in the grand finale decider were dance troupe Kookies and Cream, quick change artists Soul Mystique, singer/songwriter Joe Moore, acrobatic group Odyssey, beat boxer Genesis and stripper Dylan Yeandle.
